Rental vacancy rates

Key insight from an independent property valuation and advisory group has revealed the rental vacancy situation in each capital city, informing the market of which areas are attracting demand — and which aren’t.

Herron Todd White has just rolled out its Month in Review report for November 2019, showcasing the latest movements and trends for property markets across Australia.

According to the group, the rental vacancy situation is varied when it comes to houses and units across each capital city.

For example, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth are each experiencing a “balanced market” when it comes to house rental vacancy. Meanwhile, Hobart and Canberra are both experiencing a “severe shortage of available property relative to demand”, and Darwin is seeing an “oversupply of available property relative to demand”, the research said.
